Can someone confirm: flying United Economy (K) from LAX-IAD-LHR, the LAX-IAD route is 20 PlusPoints to upgrade to biz, IAD-LHR routes are 80 plus points.
Had a great start to the week. I was having a conversation with an attractive woman at the club last night. Turns out we were on the same flight and even upgraded to adjoining seats! Had a great time on the plane, too. Took an Uber to my hotel (after exchanging numbers with the lady). The hotel put me in a corner suite! Fantastic breakfast this morning. I will have to wait a day or two before texting my lady-friend. ( I WAKE UP AND THE FOG LIFTS ) Another day of zoom calls in my underwear

New England Friends: we are a couple in early 30s (No kids yet and a small dog) planning to move to New England from Chicago. Our options are Hartford, CT and Boston, MA. Below are few considerations - 1. SO does not need to travel and will commute to work and I might need to travel when COVID is over. 2. Will prefer a dog friendly neighbourhood. 3. Both are from Midwest so winter does not bother us. 4. Planning to sell our condo in Chi and buy a SFH in the location. Any recommendations?
Which option is better to pay for a flight? - 52000 United Miles - 35000 CSR points - $500 Trying to pick the best value option.
Might be a dumb question - but does your status carry over when you book a flight through chase rewards?
First on a delta flight. Attendant announcement 'if you are having a conversation please be quiet for the consideration of the other passengers'. Finally an announcement we can all relate to.
Which is better: waiting Day if to switch flights on American Airlines or calling a couple days before? I don’t have status (I know bad me) so I can’t switch for free.
Strongly considering accepting a local offer with Salesforce - 135k base, no travel. Please talk me out of it. Could stay and make Partner and make a million a year in my late 30s/early 40s
Budgeting: 1. How much are you budgeting for travel each year? 2. How much debt do you expect to have upon graduation? 3. How many years after graduation do you expect to have paid back your loans?
